[cheering and applause] folks, i'm going to start with a problem. we got a problem. apparently america spends more than it takes in. so america needs to figure out a way to become more fiscally responsible. unfortunately while america figures it out, there is a repo man, let's call him "china," that on august 2nd could possibly repossess us. [laughter] the good news is we have a couple of good debt reduction options at our disposal. worse comes to worse, we could for some weird reason arbitrarily change the money we're allowed to be in date, which makes no [bleeped] sense whatsoever, but the bad news is the people in charge of putting together this country-saving plans are the same ones who as of today are currently on the floor
: "happening now" starts now. jon: we begin with this fox news alert, breaking news and new video from mumbai, indian where three large explosions have rocked that city. we are getting reports that at least eight people are dead. more than a hundred injured in what appears to be a series of coordinated attacks. the blasts coincide with the birthday of the only surviving gunman from the 2008 mumbai attacks nearly three years ago. those attacks killed 166 people. let's go to kt mcfarland a fox news national security analyst and host of fox news.come live depth con 3. is it too early to assign responsibility. >> reporter: it is too early. a couple of things we need to keep in mind about the whole region, the last terrorist attacks, the mumbai attacks, the mumbai-style terrorist attacks on the hotel in mumbai those were ultimately traced, unofficially to the pakistani intelligence services. there are a couple of conclusions we want to make prior to making any real conclusions, probably is there a connection to pakistan unofficial or otherwise. is this the first attack that we're going to see and

[laughter] and what's got me jazzed is that the republican field is brimming with superstars. i don't know how i'll decide between the ten of them. it's like an all-you-c
's why i think folks like mitt romney and others. >> jon huntsman. >> and others are very nervous about that rise. >> jon huntsman and tim pawlenty, they must all be nervous. >> absolutely. >> thanks so much. >> thank you so much. >>> now to the unseasonably early and particularly brutal national drought already taking a early and brutal drought. if the forecasts are accurate, this drought could become one of the nation's worsts. it comes on the heels of a string of severe weather systems in recent months, from that rare and remarkable dust storm in phoenix to the devastating and deadly tornadoes that stunned the midwest. so just why are we seeing these extreme systems? damon morgland is with friends of the earth, and he joins us this afternoon. good afternoon, damon. we add the flooding in north dakota, a string of poppy .tornadoes, are we seeing the beginning of climate change? >> it certainly seems to be the case. scientists have long been telling us these kind of intense, ferocious storms, floods, droughts and wildfires were exactly the kind of thing we'll be seeing. you know, as we

in our team covering it this morning. jake tapper, jon karl on capitol hill. jon, given the deadlock, the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell says he doesn't think a deal can be reached, so he's come up with a last-ditch fallback which puts the burden on the president. >> reporter: last choice option, only if the talks completely collapse. it's complicated but the bottom line is, it would give the president the auththity on his own to gradually raise that debt ceiling by $2.5 trillion between now and the election. the political burden is all the president's. he can do it without spending cuts and even in the face of opposition from the majority in congress. but i've got to tell you, george i talked to a lot of republicans in the house, rank and file, who say it's not acceptable. they want real spending cut, a lot of them and nothing else. >> there's no guarantee of spending cuts even though it would avoid tax increases. let me bring in jake tapper for the response on that. any openness in the white house to that and where do they think the talks are right now? are they as pessim
the "sunday times" of london and his company stock is sinking. how bad will this get? jon stewart and british ex-pass had fun, a lot of fun, actually, with the murdoch story. that's on the "sideshow" tonight. eugene robin sons, of course he won the pulitzer prizewinning there and ron reagan. and a political fight was quite relatable to real people in the country who don't normally watch political programs like this, but will be very much affected by what we talk about in the next couple of minutes. let's listen to the president. >> can you tell the folks at home that no matter what happens, the social security checks are going to go out on august the 3rd? about $20 billion of social security checks that have to go out the day after the government is supposedly going to go into default. >> this is not just a matter of social security checks. these are veterans checks, these are folks on disability and their checks. they're about 70 million checks that go out. each month. >> can you guarantee as president those checks will go out on august 3rd? >> i cannot guarantee those checks go out on augus
believe that -- and i think mr. cantor, my majority leader, i do believe that mitch mcconnell stan jon kyl all -- and jon kyl all spends the same view making sure there are no tax increases on the table. bill: good morning to you. do you like this mcconnell idea if your backs are against the wall notice end and you had to put something out there as a last-ditch option, would this be it? >> the first part i looked at, i haven't been able to read all the way through it, i don't like relinquishing our power to raise the debt for the president. we have a responsibility as members of congress to bring the accountability back to this country. i wouldn't want to relinquish it seeing what this president has done for job growth. just 18,000. canada has a smaller population than california grew more jobs than this president's administration. bill: if that's off the table, i think what mcconll was trying to do is force the white house to identify where the -- they wd cut to be specific about it. if that was something congress to chew on or more importantly the american people. >> i understand why mcc
. i'm jon haber of alto music. i've been around music my entire life. this is the first alto music i opened when i was 24. my business is all about getting music into people's hands. letting someone discover how great music is, is just an awesome thing. and the plum card from american express open helps me do that. i use it for as much inventory as i possibly can. from picks...to maracas... to drums... to dj equipment... you name it, i can buy it. and the savings that we get from the early pay discount on those purchases has given us money to reinvest back into our business and help quadruple the size of our floor space. and the more we expand, the more space we have for instruments and musicians to come play them. rock n roll will never die. how can the plum card's trade terms get your business booming? booming is putting more music in more people's hands. didn't taste so vegetably? well, v8 v-fusion juice gives you a full serving of vegetables, plus a full serving of fruit. but it just tastes like fruit. and try our deliciously refreshing v8 v-fusion + tea. but it just tastes like
connell and jon kyl all share the same view. we need the biggest spending cut possible. making sure that there are no tax increases on the table. >> bret: why haven't house republicans moved forward their own plan? >> we have a number of members who just don't believe they should ever vote to increase the debt ceiling. >> bret: how are you going to get anything through? >> i think it's pretty clear that there is one option. one option that our members are talking about that. is, and i brought it up with the president today. that is linking the increase in the debt ceiling to real enforcement mechanisms, real budget mechanisms. one of them being a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. most americans believe that washington bought ought to be balanced every year. there has been a big effort to get a balanced budget amendment passed. i think it's one of those ideas where if you could get two-third of the house, or two-third of the senate to support a balanced budget amendment, it would certainly ease the way for the kind of spending cuts we would get now. >> bret: but is there
boehnor, eric canton, mitch mcconnell, jon kyl, collectively they passed 19 votes during the bush administration to raise the debt ceiling, just those four guys. raising the debt ceiling is not something that usually has a big fight over it. sometimes it does, sometimes part of congress tries to leverage this vote because it's something that absolutely has to pass. in the same way crafty politicians will sometimes attach unrelated things to the pentagon budget because the pentagon budget everybody agrees has to pass, in that same way, politicians in the past tried to attach things to the debt ceilings. they not only failed, they so misunderstood the dynamics of their own party, john boehnor is so bad at his job, a political pundit at 9:00 p.m. on nbc, using this as a metaphor of what just happened to them. the breeze helps, i think. republicans blew it. they totally, utterly, 100% blew it, and today they had to essentially surrender. >> republicans senate leader mitch mcconnell presented. >> after weeks and months of fighting about it, senate republicans today proposed allowing pr
the talks by vice president biden. the majority leader represented house republicans, jon kyl for senate republicans, and that vice president. they have been talking about all lot of cuts, both to discretionary and non- discretionary spending, but there the problem is that it does not seem to add at to what they would need to meet the president's requirements to get the country through the next election. that would be somewhere in the area of $2.4 trillion increase in the debt ceiling. john boehner has made it clear that for any increase in the debt ceiling, they will not need more than a one-one increased ratio. quite frankly the democrats have not agreed to that level of cuts. it looks like they will go back today, scour potential areas of saying that they have talked about, and see how much they can agree to and go from there. agree to and go from there. host: in your article from yesterday's with the headline " boehner tells conference big deal no longer operative," you said that there were criticisms for the grand bargain. he pays -- he faced opposition from eric cantor. they presen
that. people like jon huntsman. he is not taking off. then on the other side, right. you have the tea party primary. right now, palin is prob not running. but i look at these numbers and i think, palin has to be looking at them. she is narcissus and she will think, why would i let michele bachmann -- >> maybe you disagree, maybe you think she is running and it won't all go to bachmann. what did you make of the news week cover on palin. you think that indicated she is still in the running or just like the celebrities? what did it tell you? it is a very strong picture of her. >> right. she likes the celebrity. and she may not give it up. but she's -- narcissus is a strong word but she is into herself. she has high self esseem to. she could look at numbers and say, why am i not in there. i could flip it around and say, mitt romney is sitting pretty with this base right now. you could have two or three people who wined up fighting each other and splitting that vote. i don't know. that is where the energy is. >> back to my initial premise which may be shattered already by my friend, joan.
are not? >> no, i it does not. as jon kyl has reported to you on the endless discussions that have gone on, we have become increasingly pessimistic that we will be able to reach an agreement with the only person in america and consign something into law, and that is the president of the united states. this is not my first choice. my first choice is to get an agreement with the president to significantly reduce spending. and we will continue to talk to them about that in the hopes that we can get there. that is what we think is the single biggest problem. >> what would you and republicans agreed to essentially raising the debt ceiling without getting our spending cuts? >> what we are not going to be of party to in the senate, i am pretty confident, it is the fault for the only way you can get an agreement that actually achieve something is when the president signs it. to actually reduce spending requires not just republicans, but a democratic senate and a democratic president. and we're still hoping to achieve spending reductions that he will sign. that is our first choice. i am going to ta
you to explain yourself and try to bring people over. it is not enough to smirk and do the jon stewart thing and said they are so stupid. the people with a minority view have to make the case. usually they will not buy it, but sometimes that well. host: you had a conversation -- you had a conversation with jon stewart? guest: i have met him before. [laughter] >> henderson, nevada. you know where that is? guest: of course. guest: of course. >> you mentioned the u.s. civil libertarians. the department of education, is a relevant institution in today's society? with state budgets controlling education, where do you think civics in high school civics in high school curriculums belong? guest: i have done a couple of documentaries for fox of education recently. i am sort of up on it. i could not to speak your second question. my sense is that civics is being de-emphasized, but i have no data to back that up. english is important, as far as i'm concerned. it not only allows you to engage with the world, past and present, but it makes you a more interesting person, one of the main reasons we a
